Be creative, choose a Plan B and avoid drink driving

Ku-ring-gai Council is encouraging its residents and visitors to think about their Plan B before heading out.

Drink driving is one of the biggest causes of death and injury on NSW roads. In 2021, alcohol-related crashes claimed the lives of 47 people on NSW roads, including 38 lives on country roads.

So have a 'Plan B' - an alternate way home that doesn’t involve driving if you have been drinking alcohol.

Your Plan B could include:

  • arranging a lift with a sober driver;
  • sharing a taxi;
  • using public transport;
  • staying on a friend’s couch;
  • booking accommodation near the party venue.

The Plan B Drink Drive Campaign is about encouraging people to make positive choices to get home safely after a night out, reinforcing the safety message that if you are having a few drinks, driving is NOT an option.

Council is working closely with participating local bottle shops to support the initiative through displaying posters that promote the Plan B message.
